rpmlint incorrectly warns of "hidden" man page
Last modified: 2009-07-16 03:29:32 EDT
When run against the krb5-libs package, rpmlint-0.87-1.fc11 is printing a hidden-file-or-dir warning about the man page for the ".k5login" file (/usr/kerberos/man/man5/.k5login.5.gz). The man page documents the ~/.k5login file.
There doesn't seem to be strong precedent for how to deal with things which start with "." -- bash package includes a man page for its '.' builtin, but the mutt package removes the "." from .muttrc. I figure we can just accept the upstream name.
Agreed, warning for this man page will be filtered out in the next rpmlint package release.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
